Abstract: Developing economies across Asia are among the most dynamic in the world. However, they are also among the most vulnerable to natural hazards, such as storms, floods, droughts, tsunamis, and earthquakes, and to the impacts of climate change, such as sea-level rise, coastal erosion, and extreme temperatures. The impacts of disasters—either direct effects that cause fatalities, render people homeless or displaced, and wreak economic damage, or indirect effects that hamper economic growth, development, and poverty reduction—all exhibit distinct relationships with the underlying drivers of disaster risk: hazard types, the exposure of population and assets, vulnerability, and socioeconomic resilience.
